Individuals can experience several forms of arm pain, with different symptoms and different causes. A common type of arm, neck and upper back pain that our Wheat Ridge chiropractor Dr. Al Simeone helps patients recover from is cervical radiculopathy. Cervical radiculopathy may be caused by a neck injury, joint inflammation or herniated discs in the neck that pinches nerves which are responsible for arm movement and sensation.

Our Wheat Ridge Chiropractor’s Arm Pain Treatment Options

If you live in Wheat Ridge and are suffering from neck pain, upper back pain, arm pain and/or numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms, please schedule an examination with our chiropractor. Arm pain caused by cervical radiculopathy can affect anyone who is experiencing a pinched nerve in the neck but it is most commonly found in adults over 50. Arm pain can be caused by any of the following problems:

Poor ergonomics

Poor ergonomics

At any age, the habitual craning of the neck over a mobile device or computer will lead to forward head posture. Poor ergonomics can also result from a poor ergonomic desk setup leading to arm pain.

Poor ergonomics

Subluxations

Caused by an injury that jostles vertebrae in the neck out of alignment or long-term poor posture can pinch nerves and inflame the facet joints. If uncorrected subluxations result in early-onset osteoarthritis; a primary cause of cervical radiculopathy and arm pain.

Herniated disc in the neck

The intervertebral discs sit between adjacent vertebrae serving as spacers and as shock absorbers. When healthy, they create a passageway allowing nerves to travel from the spinal cord to the rest of the body including the extremities. When injured or stressed, intervertebral discs lose their hydration anc can bulge, herniate or rupture, this can happen due to the aging process or from physical stress placed on the spine like a car accident injury, etc. When intervertebral discs and vertebrae pinch the nerves that travel to arms, individuals commonly experience arm pain, numbness and weakness.
